About Isabelle Mountain
I have lived abroad for several years, I'm fluent in English and German, I love travelling and discover countries off the beaten track. I have lived in Paris, which I love, for a long time but I have brought my 2 daughters up in Honfleur with my English husband. After he died, I decided to come back and live in Honfleur and manage my 2 rental cottages full time. I'm very fond of the place which bears a lot of memories for me but which is also rich in history. La Ferme and la Bergerie were indeed part of a property which once belonged to a local poetess, Lucie Delarue-Mardrus, married to a famous orientalist, Dr Mardrus, a renowned translater of the 1001 Nights stories in the 1930's. I now live in her house which she named The Pavillon de la Reine because it had been built for Queen Marie-Antoinette! I love Honfleur and Normandy for its rich historical and cultural patrimony, its fine sand beaches and its countryside, only 2 hours away from Paris! I like sharing my favourite places and my good tips with you and I remain available during your stay to help you discover Honfleur and its surroundings off the beaten track!
Isabelle Mountain purchased this Cottage in 2004
Why Isabelle Mountain chose Honfleur
My husband and I have acquired the property because we wanted access to the town by foot. We were charmed by the history of the place. La Bergerie was an former rural building for men and animals and was part of the farm below. In the old days, there used to be a vine in the greenhouse - recently restored - and a vegetable garden. the house was practically a ruin and we decided to save it from total destruction. We transformed it into a comfortable gite in 2012.

Beautiful location with stunning views
La Bergerie is a beautiful, well-equipped property in a very quiet location but just a short walk into the centre of Honfleur. With spacious seating areas inside and outside, it provided a haven to relax and enjoy the stunning views. The owner, Isabelle, has added many finishing touches to make the place feel homely and everything is very high spec, as well as being exceptionally clean and comfortable. Isabelle knows the area and the local produce very well and can make recommendations for fabulous restaurants (of which there are many in and around Honfleur), as well as things to see and do. We will definitely be back very soon!
